Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth Testing

Emerging research suggests that small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) is an under-diagnosed condition that can cause ongoing bloating and bowel problems.


SIBO occurs when bacteria that normally grow in other parts of the gut start growing in the small intestine, which then causes pain and diarrhea; SIBO testing—performed through a non-invasive breath test—is recommended not only for people with gut issues, but also for anyone with chronic pancreatitis, Crohn’s disease, and scleroderma whose symptoms are worsening in spite of medical treatment.


With your test results, your Forum Health physicians can treat your SIBO through a variety of therapies and nutritional support to get your gut back in balance and you back in life.
